In the old days, Tsugaru folk songs were filled with laughter.
Tsugaru-jamisen is so popular, it is in a class of its own. But that’s not all Tsugaru folk songs have to offer! Enjoy the powerful world of singing, dancing and shamisen brought together by performers from Aomori, the place of their origin, accompanied by the Tsugaru dialect of the dialect poet, Kappei Ina !
In today’s world, it seems that Tsugaru folk songs are only known for the Tsugaru-jamisen, but it is actually songs and dances which prop up this shamisen. I hope people will enjoy the immersive experience like actually “being in Tsugaru,” through this fusion of songs, dances and shamisen.
Come and experience the feeling of traveling to Aomori through the top-class performance of artists who have won numerous awards.
